We Love The Cute Shoes From Apologie & Now They're Finally Available In Singapore
Founder/designer Olivia Cognet has trained at some of the biggest names in fashion.
Before launching Apologie in 2012, the art and fashion design-trained 34-year-old honed her skills at a succession of revered French houses like Jean-Charles de Castelbajac, Sonia Rykiel, Carven and Lanvin. Thereafter, she turned to consulting for more quintessentially Parisian heavyweights including Mugler and Leonard.
The S/S '16 collection is inspired by her childhood.
It includes glitter-covered platform wedges and sandals in a mix of leather and candy-coloured vinyl, while pumps come in a custom baby blue, gingham-printed patent leather with a bow on top.
Expect time-honoured, down-to-earth styles.
Like block-heeled, single-soled sandals; Mary Janes (albeit with multiple straps); and – a French favourite – espadrilles
The label debuts clip-on accessories this season.
“They’re meant to decorate shoes that I see everyday on the street and add a touch of luxury,” says Cognet.
Cognet's belief that chic should come easy extends to her prices.
It starts from $350 for a pair of espadrille slip-ons to $650 for high-heeled sandals – mid-range despite being produced at top manufacturers in Italy, Portugal and Spain. Now available exclusively at La Collection, Level 2 Takashimaya D.S.
